Faith

This is the faith as the contents of God’s New Testament economy, which all the real believers in Christ hold and fight for.

Holding the Bible as the complete and only divine revelation (2 Tim 3:16; Rev. 22:18-19; Col. 1:25) we strongly believe that God is eternally one and also eternally the Father, the Son, and the Spirit, the three being distinct but not separate (1 Cor. 8:4; Matt. 28:19)

We hold that Christ is both the complete God and the perfect man. Without abandoning His divinity, He was conceived in the womb of a human virgin, lived a genuine human life on earth (Col. 2:9; 1 Peter 2:22; Luke 1:31; Heb 4:15), and died a vicarious and all-inclusive death on the cross (2 Cor. 5:21; Rom. 6:6; Heb. 2:9; John 12:24). After three days He resurrected bodily and has ascended to the heavens. He is now in glory, fully God but still fully man (1 Cor. 15:4; 1 Tim. 2:5; Acts 7:56). We look to His imminent return with the kingdom of God, by which He will reign over the earth in the millennium and in eternity (Rev. 2:17; Heb 10:37; Rev. 11:15).

We confess that the third of the Trinity, the Spirit, is equally God. All that the Father has and is, is expressed by the Son; and all that the Son has and is, is realized as the Spirit (Acts 5:3-4; John 4:24; John 16:13-15).

We further believe that mankind is in need of God’s salvation. Though we were absolutely unable to fulfill the heavy demands of God’s righteousness, holiness, and glory, Christ fulfilled all the requirements through His death on the cross. Because of Christ’s death, God has forgiven us of our sins, justified us by making Christ our righteousness and reconciled us to Himself. Based on Christ’s redemption, God regenerates the redeemed with His Spirit to consummate His salvation, that they may become His children (Rom. 3:13-15; 5:10,18-19; 8:3-4a, 1 Pet. 1:3; John 1:12).

Now possessing God’s life and nature, the believers enjoy a daily salvation in His Body in this age and the eternal salvation in the coming age and in eternity (John 1:12; 1 John 5:12; 2 Pet. 1:4; Phil. 1:19; Mark 10:30). In eternity we will dwell with God in the New Jerusalem, the consummation of God’s salvation of His elect (Rev 21:2-3; 3:12; 4:3; 21:18; John 4:14).

All the main points above are supported by many verses in the Bible. When we hear the faith – the objective faith – something within rises up: there is an infusion from God and an ability in us is produced – we simply believe! We need more and more of such hearing of the faith!

    Romans 10:17 So faith comes out of hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. This is the most clear statement of faith I have ever read!
    1Tim. 1:18-20 This charge I commit to you, my child Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you might war the good warfare, holding faith and a good conscience, concerning which some, thrusting these away, have become shipwrecked regarding the faith; of whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have delivered to Satan that they may be disciplined not to blaspheme. I am one with this faith and all that enter into it. Amen! and Amen!

    Amen! Enjoy the supply…. would like to know deeper… The term God-man is it biblical? Accepted by fundamental churches?

  • @White Jade Tan, if you read the verses above and also at the About page, especially in John 1:12-13, you will see that all believers are God-men, born of God with His divine life and nature. All throughout history there have been many believers who discovered this marvelous fact and took it as their reality, and their living, experience, and being was uplifted!

    I did enjoy this article! In Romans, the basis of redemption is proptiation. Christ himself is the propitiation cover. We meet in the holy of holies to speek with God and be one with Him. Since He is in our spirit, this redemption purges us from all sin and from all the we are that falls short of his glory. Praise the Lord for the basis of our redemption! We now can proceed to experience the full salvation of the Triune God! We can be transformed. We can be conformed. We can be built up.

    This is the faith of Christ. It is not our faith that we have apart from Christ Himself. It is the faith we have been delivered over to and which came into us when Christ came into us. To believe Him and have faith in Him is to receive Him as our eternal life. Amen!
